I am very privileged and proud to be able to call The Montague my second home for the last 20 years. I am blessed to work with such a long-standing, committed team, each one of whom is passionate about delivering genuine hospitality and superb service. We take the time to know our guests, ensuring that each guest’s stay is personalised, weaving in memorable experiences that remain with you long after your visit ends.

Neil Anderson

Deputy General Manager

I originally worked at The Milestone Hotel in various departments which is also part of the Red Carnation Hotel family. In February 2016, I joined The Montague on the Gardens as Deputy General Manager. It is my dedicated team's goal to ensure that all of our guests receive the very warmest welcome to the hotel and that their stay is perfect. Our motto is 'No request is too large, no detail is too small.'

At The Montague we like to make things magical and fun for our guests and therefore we have an array of experiences available for different occasions. Whatever the occasion, it would be my pleasure to tailor it to your needs so that your visit is not just a night out but becomes a treasured memory!

As the Front of House Manager, it is my goal that every guest leaves The Montague with a smile on their face, eagerly planning their return. Together with my dedicated team, we craft a warm, personalised, and attentive experiences for every guest. It is our pleasure to create memories that will stay with you for years to come so make sure to let us know if you are celebrating a special occasion so we can ensure it is properly honoured.

Martin Halls

Executive Head Chef

We have a wealth of different dining options to offer you at The Montague. Many of my dishes are inspired by our President and Founder of Red Carnation Hotels, Mrs Beatrice Tollman, whose philosophy is to offer the very best in delicious comfort food. When designing my menus, I particularly focus on seasonal, sustainable produce that is sourced locally. If you have any special dietary requirements, I will of course be happy to look after this request.

Mustafa El'Omari

Head Concierge

As the Head Concierge I truly love looking after our guests. It is my role to organise your private itinerary whilst you are staying with us, to book you the best seats in the theatre and to get you a table in those very difficult to book restaurants. My team and I continue to seek out all that London has to offer, from the dazzlingly new to the quintessentially traditional, so we can offer you the very best advice when putting together your itinerary.

I am delighted to lead a wonderful team in the UK, taking care of our guests' reservations. Let us know whether you will be celebrating your honeymoon, birthday, or wedding. It would be our pleasure to oversee your bedroom allocation and put in a special request prior to your arrival. We can also organise any additional extras you may like such as chocolates, champagne and strawberries, which would be waiting for you upon arrival. We will ensure that your stay will be one you fondly remember.
